The Paul Coleman Memorial Scholarship

A scholarship for a medical student or pre-med student actively applying to medical school.

The Paul Coleman Memorial Scholarship

Thank you for your interest in applying for the Paul Coleman Memorial Scholarship! 

Nevus Outreach is offering 1 - $500 scholarships in honor of Paul.

As the eldest son of two physicians, Paul's interest in the field of medicine began at an early age. He was a paramedic in Detroit when his son Evan was born. Paul's medical education was jump-started when Evan was diagnosed with cancer. Five years later, one of Evan's last wishes cemented Paul's path: to discover more about the disease that prematurely took Evan from us, and to help as many people as he could along the way. Over the next several years, Paul earned a master’s in medical science and became a physician’s assistant where he spent the rest of his career caring for the underserved populations across North Carolina.

As the Chair of the Board of Directors for Nevus Outreach from 2018-2020, along with his leadership, he had a strong presence within our Board of Directors.
